When do you apply for college/university?
Answered

So I’ve been hearing some contrasting things lately; do you apply for college in your juniour year, or senior year? Also, I’m planning on taking IB (and you do the actuall IB programme in your junior and senior year) so how would that work?

Hello! You apply to college in your senior year! Most people apply through this platform called the Common App or Coalition App. Deadlines are usually in November or December (you can look up your specific college's due date).

If your school does have IB, I'd recommend talking to your school's counselor or IB coordinator. You can update your application so colleges can view it by contacting the college admissions. Also, colleges will know that since you will be in the IB program that you'll most likely still be in it at the end of your senior year.
